Okay so I'm flying to LAN Syndicate, that's happening regardless. I WANT TO BRING MY PC WITH ME ON THE PLANE no airport scrubs touching my ITX "baby". I know the TSA nazi's limit liquid to 3.4oz per passenger.
So I have four questions 1. How much liquid is in a Corsair h80i? 2. How can I drain AND fill it again it if its over 100ml? 3. Should I just FedEx it to someone in seattle? 4. just dont tell TSA shitheads there is liquid in it and go on my merry way it should fit in a backpack easily
Probably safer overall to just throw in a low profile heatsink
Otherwise I suppose you could drain it if possible and just throw in some distilled water you can grab at any local corner store for the weekend, not sure how well draining and refilling an AIO will work though
probably best not to bother trying to stuff past the TSA
If your case has a PSU bracket what you can do is reverse mount your PSU in it with some long screws, the ones for fan mounting should work fine, and then you can fit a large heatsink in the case, at least your case looks similar to the elite 130 from coolermaster
heatsink in the picture is basically the same size as a Hyper 212, it's the dark knight 2 from xigmatek, also I managed to mount a micro ATX motehrboard in the case, can't use a side panel sadly, although CM did post it to their facebook page, so that was neat
